Customised computer training in Microsoft, Adobe and other Software

Adobe Acrobat Training Courses

Adobe Acrobat is used primarily for creating and editing PDF documents.

Acrobat is ideal for making documents or brochures for viewing electronically and for commercial printing.

The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a universal file format that preserves the appearance of the original document. This file format also allows users to share documents across software platforms and with others on the Internet.

Adobe Acrobat Professional and Adobe Acrobat Standard have security features to ensure that unauthorised modifications cannot be made to these documents.

Keystroke Learning’s Adobe Acrobat courses cater for every level of user, from beginner to advanced.

Beginners will gain foundational skills to build on, while advanced users will delve into the more technical capabilities of Acrobat.

Keystroke Learning Adobe Acrobat trainers have many years of experience. Attending a hands-on Full Day, Half Day, Workshop and Live Online Training course will ensure that you gain practical experience and time saving tips and tricks.

If you require 1 on 1 or group bookings to suit your schedule, just contact us so we can discuss your needs. Customised courses are also available for your specific requirements.

We are based in Melbourne, and we can deliver in house Adobe Acrobat training nationwide.

Adobe Acrobat FAQ

Who uses Adobe Acrobat?

Adobe Acrobat is almost universal in business use due to its ability to create documents in a portable document format. This means documents created with Acrobat can be used and read on any device, such as a PC, a Mac, or a mobile or tablet device. Documents created using Acrobat can be secured to ensure unauthorised changes cannot be made.
Key features of Acrobat:

  • Document Security
  • Readable on any device
  • Permanent information removal (Redaction)
  • Export document to Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft Outlook integration

These are just some of the features in Adobe Acrobat, but it’s a huge application so of course there are many more.

Should I buy an Adobe Acrobat for Dummies book or attend a Training Course?

Have you ever wondered why the Dummies books are so popular? Well, it’s probably because so many of us are self-taught, using Google to find out how to use a function, or we are shown how to use software by someone at work. Although this can be useful, it also means we tend to spend a lot of time with trial and error, or we are just picking up somebody else’s bad habits. Trial and error unfortunately involves a lot of error, and the bad habits you pick up will probably be passed on to the next person, so soon they spread across the business, meaning entire teams can end up working inefficiently.

At this point, you might head to the bookstore or do an online search to find an Acrobat for Dummies book to help solve some of those tricky issues. That’s a step in the right direction, and we sometimes use reference manuals ourselves. The problem is that trying to learn by trial and error may cost you many times the cost of a good training course.

Our Adobe Acrobat courses are designed to target the key features and tools included in the application to help you get back to work and apply them right away.

Why choose Keystroke Learning?

We Know What Works – Hands-on fully interactive training courses are our bread and butter. Years of real world experience and feedback from our participants have shown us that this type of training produces the best results.
We Listen – Understanding your specific requirements enables us to build the best training for your needs. The best way for us to do that is to listen to what you have to say, rather than imposing our ideas on you.

Why should I attend an Adobe Acrobat Training Course?

At Keystroke Learning we pride ourselves in helping people to get the most out of the Adobe Acrobat software they are using. We emphasise working smarter, not harder. Participants often tell us that they are saving lots of time by using the tips and shortcuts they learn during our courses.

Typically, one of our experienced trainers will walk you through the features and functions of the software, then you will try them out on your own, with tips and guidance on getting the best out of the features. We also encourage participants to ask lots of questions to help you get the most out of your learning experience.

You’ll receive a manual to take away at the end of the course, as well as exercise files so you can practice later, or just to jog your memory when you need.

Is it best to do a full day or a half day course?

Well, it all depends on your training requirements and the amount of time you have available. A half day course will target a smaller number of topics, while a full day course allows time to cover more. Either way, the training course will provide in depth coverage of the features you need to learn, while allowing time for questions and interaction. It really comes down to the specific topics you want to cover and the time you have.

Where are you based?

Keystroke Learning is an Australian company based in Melbourne. We specialise in providing Adobe Acrobat in-house training nationwide, but we can also deliver training in the Melbourne CBD as required.

Do you provide online training?

What’s the difference between Acrobat and the Adobe Reader?

Basically, the Adobe Reader does just what it says on the tin: allows reading of PDF files and performs some very basic tasks such as enabling the user to fill in form fields and add some highlights. That’s about it. If that is all you want to do then the Adobe Reader will be fine for your needs. The Adobe Reader is available as a free download from Adobe.

Acrobat, which is available in Standard and Pro versions, can be used to create PDF files from many other formats, edit them in various ways, add form fields, security settings, and it has a huge range of other options. If you need to be able to create a PDF from a variety of formats and initiate document reviews, create forms, or perform complex editing and manipulation of PDF documents, Adobe Acrobat should be your choice.

I need to split a PDF into different files. How can I do that?

A PDF can be split into sections by using the extract pages options. Do this by opening the navigation panel on the left of the screen and ensuring that the page thumbnails view is displayed. Select the pages you want to extract. At the top of the panel, click the options button, then select Extract Pages. In the dialog box, confirm the pages and choose the relevant options for extraction, then click OK.

I scanned a document but I need to search the content. Is this possible?

This is something that Adobe Acrobat is particularly good at. Before you can perform a search, you will first need to run something known as OCR (Optical Character Recognition) on your document. Once this has been completed your document will be fully searchable. If required, you can also copy the content after the OCR has been completed.

Can I use a PDF on a touch screen?

PDF files created using Adobe Acrobat are ideal for use on touch screen devices such as iPads. As the name suggests, PDF documents are first and foremost, portable. This means they can be read, reviewed and edited on a variety of devices. If you are using a touch screen with a stylus, you can annotate your PDF file using digital ink, and even add your signature if you want.

Depending on the version of Acrobat you are using, you can also store your document in the cloud and sync changes you make on one device to your other devices so that you can carry on editing wherever you are.

Can I set my PDF to open up in a specific view?

This is a good one! Most PDF files open with the pages panel hidden, forcing the user to open the panel to navigate the document. To make it easy for the reader, set the initial view. To do this, go to File, Properties, then select Initial View. From here you can set the page magnification level, the page layout and scroll options. You can also select the navigation panels you want the user to see, and even set the document to open at a specific page if you want.

Once these changes have been made, the next time the document is opened, it will be displayed exactly the way you intended.

How do I book a course?

You can fill in your details on our booking form but the easiest way is to give us a call on (03) 9999 7780 and let us take care of all the hard work.

What if I want to customise a course?

We can tailor a course for your team if you don’t want an Off the Shelf solution. If this means building a specific training course just for you, we will be happy to do so. We can also work with you to build a semi customised course by selecting from our extensive topic range. We have created modularised course topics with exactly this situation in mind. It means that we can build your solution quickly and help you to keep your costs down.

Where to from here?

Your learning doesn’t stop once you have completed your course. We hope you will continue your experience by taking some time to practice what you have learned and apply it to your own situation and environment.

If we have done our job well, you may be inspired to learn even more by attending another course. If you are looking for something other than Adobe Acrobat, we have a comprehensive range of courses available for you to choose from.

We are here to help, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any further advice.
